Israel’s retaliatory attack hits Hamas weapons facility in Gaza

According to the IDF, around 10 sites of Hamas terrorists in Gaza trip were attacked by Israel in retaliation which included weapons and explosives manufacturing factory, underground infrastructure and a military training compound. The Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz said that the rocket attacks by Hamas militants were a reminder that Israel must always be strong. “On a historic night of peace, we have received a reminder from our enemies that we must always be strong and prepared to defend Israel’s residents in every arena and at any time”, Gantz said.

Israel PM Benjamin Netanyahu’s advisor Aaron Klein blamed Iran for the rocket attacks by Hamas militants. “Gaza terrorist cowards are desperately launching rockets at Jews because they know this new era of peace will isolate their paymasters in Tehran. Iran-backed terrorists are not going to stop peace for one second as the children of Abraham come together to forge the path of real peace”, he said.

The US President Donal Trump met the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu after Israel signed the Abraham Accord along with bilateral agreements with the UAE and Bahrain. The Palestinians are strongly opposed to the normalisation agreement between Israel and the Gulf countries. Turkey had also expressed its opposition to the agreement.
